About Me
The one and only Sir Bobby Robson

Here are just some of the things the Toon boss has tried to say but got muddled up.

  • "I thought the challenge on Ken (Kieron) Dyer was a definite penalty"
  • "All of the players start afresh. I have no premonitions, the floor has been wiped clean."
  • "That performance didn't just exceed my expectations, it went past them as well."
  • "The players didn't need motivation when I arrived, they just needed something to gee them up."
  • "Ive been given a ring of confidence by the chairman."
  • "I've heard that the match tickets are selling like cream cakes."
  • "Well, we're not out of the jungle yet."
  • "When Alan Shearer trains, he's like a bull in a sweet shop."
  • "I couldn't be more delighted for the players, I'm over the hill."
  • "Well make sure Alan Shearer's wrapped up in candy floss."
  • "Laurent (Robert) has fractured his cheekbone, so he hasn't been kissed, has he?"
  • "The hotel's fine, the foods great, the people are nice, but it (Sarajevo, Bosnia) isn't Hawaii."
  • "Once your on the banana slide, its hard to get off."
  • "Newcastle tackled like tigers and jumped like salmon"
  • "Had we had a goal, I think we'd have won." (After drawing 1-1 with Everton)
  • "Ruud has bought big Duncan (Ferguson) just for Alan (Shearer), but wisperers said that it was as a threat to Alan."
  • "I banned mobile phones." (after being asked about Newcastle's communication problems, on the pitch.)
  • "I want to play the long ball and I do want to play the short ball. I think football is all about long and short balls."
  • "The first 90 minutes are the most important."
  • "With Maradona, even Arsenal would have won it (the 1986 World Cup)."
